Parents definately have a share of the blame, working as a waiter in a burger joint you see some parents load their kids with food..its rather disgusting!....though children do not remain children forever. Sure the parents can instill bad habits but everyone has to overcome bad habits at some point. (says me..a silly smoker, unwilling to break hos own bad habit).
Though I will say that I did my psychology masters thesis on the affects of video game use and from what I found, and all the research that was used in developing the study, video games are not to blame. In fact, there is a large amount of research which suggests that active video games (meaning sports or fighting, not wii or kinect) increase levels of physical activity. I think video games can be viewed in the same way as food. As a child the child must be limited on how much video game us is appropriate. And when they get older they will self regulate, and if they dont...then they are solely to blame for their excessive indulgences.

Oh dear...when I said there is little research which indicates- this does not mean there is not research in the area, it means there is research but little of it supports the relationship between self-esteem and sports participation. The majority of the research supports the idea that there is not a relationship.

The penises should compete with the vaginas, I have agreed with this throughout, I am only talking about this one particular case...and to copy you argument format, the penises should compete with the penises, but this doesn't mean they always will. it's easy to say the way things SHOULD be...

and yes of course people feel down but feeling down and self-esteem are not the same thing. Feeling down is a component of a many layered structure, which is self esteem. What I meant is that if you can't handle losing, and it affects your actual self-esteem then perhaps it isn't for you. Self-esteem is not a fluctuating concept, its a slowly changing aspect of an individual. Moods, such as a bad mood after losing a game, are not the sole component of self-esteem.

And with relation to the football, I picked your sentence up in the wrong way..allow me to explain, I read it as "i played as the number 10 (playmaking attacking midfeilder)- a star of important player.. (in my reading I thought you meant that the number 10 was always the star if you get me.) Rather than what you actually meant..so sorry for the confusion :D

A commitee sounds perfect ;) no no i joke, I agree with you about his needs not being above others needs though... I guess its just unfortunate that the kid was playing and being successful and then has to stop.

Anyhow this is overly serious.... :D

but...what on earth is wrong with the word chortle? :D :D

HAHAHAHAHA....i didn't realise we were using patronising laughter but if you want to quote me then at least have the courtesy to do it right :P I said there are no star "positions" on a football team, not no stars on a football team. I understand football perfectly well thank you, also having played it from a very young age and to a very competitive level.
I also meant in this particular instance the boy taking it away is no different from a girl taking it away as there are few physiological advantages this boy has over the girls. Of course that is not applicable to all instances of boys and girls playing sport. I'm only saying for this kid, not for all men and women :D
Though I fail to see how self-esteem is relevent in terms of the sport? Sport is not played competitively for your self-esteem, and in fact there is little research (as far as I know from the guy in my masters class who completed his thesis on self-esteem and sport, and the literature he found...though I may be totally wrong..) which indicates a strong correlation between self-esteem and sport in teenagers. If losing harms your self esteem then I don't believe sport is for you.
I am not saying that all boys should be allowed play on girls teams, or that girls should just suck it up and deal with the harsh realities of their physiological shortcomings or however dramatically that wants to be phrased..I am saying that I don't think there are many physiological advantages a 13 year old 4'8 boy has over a team of 18 year old girls. Also, team comradery does not necessarily need to diminish because there is a boy on the team.
However, all this said, I think its obvious that its best when it remains, boys on boys teams and girls on girls teams. But this is a rare occurance and if the boy has a real talent it would be a shame for it to go to waste because of a lack of team for him. As he grows up and his male physiological dominance comes more to the forefront then he will have oppertunities to move to other teams if he wants it so bad...and if he doesnt want it so bad-then let the girls play their own game :D

I'm not trying to upset people by what I said, it most likely i'm wrong :D but healthy debate is key :D also...the disney movie comment made me chortle, wonderful :D

I played soccer for about 11 years (on an official team). from 6-17 years of age. I was what you call the number 10 (a playmaking attacking midfielder). A "star" player or important player. The ball is filtered through me to start and carry on and finish an attack on goal if needed. The reason I mention this is because a lot of the attention would be focused on me, kinda like a quarterback and football. It was a boys team and I'm a boy and I made it to that level through my play, creativity and teamwork with other boys my own age.




Just to clarify, there is no "star" position on a football team..yeah often teams have a star attacking midfeilder, or striker..but consider Italy, one of the best football nations in the world, they breed a hell of a lot more star defenders than attacking midfeilders...there are a lot of brilliant football teams in the world who dont even play a playmaking attacking midfielder :D
Also, a boy being the star of a team takes away from a girls chance of being the star just as much as an amazing girl takes that chance from other girls. If we assume the 13 year old boy isnt physically dominating, which I cant imagine he is from his height and weight, then I fail to see the difference. I understant what you mean by other teams being able to say "we dont need a boy to win"...but who is going to think that when he's 13 and everyone playing is much older :D
Though i very much agree with the point that he has many options such as trying to set up a team, and even when he is older he can move to a team. I work with two guys who moved to Ireland just to play hockey as their season was over in New Zealand, and then they'll move back..but thats not really an option before he's older so let him play til these chances arise.

Posted 27 Apr 2012 13:07

I feel that if there is a demand for it to be taught then go for it...but only if it was taught as a debatable subject. One can have a deeper insight into everything without being corrupted by it if it is taught in the right way.

I dont see why the resteraunt should have to be concerned for the health of customers entering the resteraunt..but there should be regulations on how much shit is in your food. It is a combination of stupid people, unhealthy food and an obsession with being fat.... oh America, we salute you :P :P (i'm only playing...i dont want any blah blah blah america is great crap :D its just a joke :P )

Surely though this is more of a common sense rather than legal argument, an isolated case (as mentioned above, it could be addressed more seriously if it were a widespread case) and the kid doesnt have physical superiority to these girls. Granted he more than likely will eventually develop to a more physcial force but most 13 year old boys are not physical "forces". He doesnt have the option of playing for a boys team, let him play. If he's too good then suck it up and deal with it, work harder at your game to learn how to contain him. Sports are competitive, you cant just take your ball and go home when someone is too good. When you talk of sports, take football for example, you dont discuss Pele and think "well he was an asshole spoiling it for the rest of the boys in the world who werent good enough"..you think "he is the best football player of all time".
Field hockey is a team sport, dominance can only go so far in a team sport.
I understand that "if you let one in then men will take over" argument but is it really feasible in this instance? It's not like millions of 13 year old boys who are exceptionally talented are just waiting for the chance to steal the girls sports. If there were many more boys who wanted to join the grils team, then there would be a boys team and all the boys would try for that.
Men have no interest in crushing womens sports, or even taking the enjoyment from them. Sports are competitive, you want to play for the best team you can play for and if the only team available is a girls team then just let him play. We've all played sports against people who are better than us, people who have destroyed us at a sport..and if you dont use that as an incentive to improve at the sport, instead of giving up, then I personally don't think sport is for you.
